The Registry is grateful to hear from Lynne Bongiovanni, Ph.D., Provost at the College of Mount Saint Vincent about her experience with Registry Member Julie Luetschwager, Ph.D., R.N., who took the role of Interim Dean of Nursing at CMSV.
“Dr. Julie Luetschwager was an incredible asset to the College during our search for a permanent dean," said Dr. Bongiovanni. "Her leadership motivated the department and kept the faculty engaged and motivated during a time of transition. She worked with state and national regulators on reports and compliance, and she brought stability to the department, both for students and faculty. Her professionalism was a model for her colleagues and students. She is a skilled communicator and successfully navigated the creation of the complex fall schedule in a timely and efficient manner. Faculty and administrators were so grateful to have Julie with us. She was a great source of advice and mentoring to many of our faculty, and she was also incredibly helpful in the transition to the permanent dean, who also sang her praises. Julie was trustworthy, collegial, and effective, and she brought reliable leadership to the department at a difficult time.”
